Marriott has opened its first Hungarian Autograph Collection property in the capital city of Budapest.

Let’s take a look at this brand-new hotel!

Marriott’s First Autograph Collection Hotel in Hungary

Dorothea Hotel, Budapest, Autograph Collection has 216 rooms and suites split into 2 design categories, contemporary and heritage. The hotel is across three historic buildings, including the old United Budapest Metropolitan Savings Bank, in Budapest’s District V neighborhood.

Contemporary rooms are decked out in dark wood flooring with peacock blue curtains. You’ll also find artwork by the Hungarian photographer Zoltán Tombor in each room. Heritage rooms offer four-poster beds and are recognizable by doors with portraits of women from the 19th century.

Amenities include 2 restaurants (with another 2 on the way helmed by a Michelin-starred chef), a spa with a swimming pool, a fitness room, 3 treatment rooms, and a sauna.

If you aren’t familiar, Autograph Collection is one of Marriott’s higher-end brands and falls under the Premium umbrella alongside brands like Le Meridien and Westin.

“Each Autograph Collection hotel tells a truly unique story and Dorothea Hotel, Budapest, Autograph Collection is a shining example of this, reflecting the rich history of Budapest through a refined and sophisticated lens,” said Sandra Schulze-Potgieter, Vice President, Premium and Select Brands, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International.

Schulze-Potgieter said that the hotel’s amenities, such as its dining options and spa, offer an “authentic sense of place” to which guests will form a meaningful connection.

How to Book the Dorothea Hotel, Budapest

Dorothea Hotel is now open for guests and is participating in the Marriott Bonvoy program. That means you can earn and redeem points during your stay.

Rates are pretty affordable, whether you’re using cash or points. You’ll find award stays starting at 48,000 points (or $350) per night for dates next May.

Earning Marriott Bonvoy points is incredibly easy as American Express Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to the chain at a 1:1 ratio. (Amex and Chase will also sometimes offer transfer bonuses).

Hot Tip:

Marriott offers several co-branded credit cards with welcome bonuses and some form of elite status. Take a look at the best Marriott Bonvoy credit cards out there!

Final Thoughts

Marriott is rapidly expanding its European portfolio, opening new properties in cosmopolitan hubs such as Budapest. The Dorothea Hotel is a gorgeous property in a building steeped in history. Award and cash rates are palatable, too, so you can have a luxury hotel stay at an affordable price!
